The Experience of God: Orthodox Dogmatic Theology, Volume 1: Revelation and Knowledge of the Triune God

Dumitru Staniloae
Translated and edited by Ioan Ionita and Robert Barringer
Foreword by Kallistos Ware

Volume 1 of The Experience of God: Orthodox Dogmatic Theology

“True and living theology, according to Archpriest Staniloae, faces simultaneously in three directions: towards the past, the present and the future. It is at once apostolic, contemporary and prophetic. Its marks, he states, are ‘fidelity to the revelation of Christ given in holy Scripture and Tradition, ...responsibility for the faithful who are contemporary with the theology as it is being done; openness to the eschatological future.’ These are precisely the features that distinguish Fr. Dumitru’s own master-work, his Dogmatic Theology, originally published in Romanian in 1978, and now translated into English. The Experience of God, as the English version is entitled, is in the first place firmly based upon apostolic tradition as interpreted by the Fathers. But it is at the same time an expression of what Fr. Georges Florovsky used to term ‘neopatristic synthesis.’ The patristic writers are treated by Fr. Dumitru always as contemporaries, as living witnesses whose testimony requires on our side a continual self-examination and rethinking, with present-day concerns in view. Faithful to the past, responsible to the present, The Experience of God is also a prophetic book, open to the future, creative, pointing towards paths as yet unexplored.”
